I went to a birthday party recently and the hosts had hired a ‘taco man’ to set up shop in their backyard and make tacos for the guests. Juan was busy cooking carne asada, al pastor and pollo while we were mingling and when it came time for lunch, everyone got in line to taste what Juan had to offer. As the guests got to the front of the line, Juan would ask you what you’d like on your tacos and then proceed to assemble them. There were grilled jalapenos ready too if you wanted them — I sure did — onions as well as two different types of salsa, cilantro on the side for you to create it according to your taste. These tacos were decent taco truck quality and definitely something you’d go back for seconds or even thirds if you had the stomach space, and what better way to have your friends fed while you entertained instead of slaving away at the stove?
I had expected the al pastor to be the most flavorful but alas, it wasn’t. I prefered the carne over the pastor. The pastor needed just a little bit more seasoning so I’m guessing maybe if you like your stuff well seasoned, let them know before hand. I couldn’t tell you how much it would cost to have them come cater your party, but I’m sure it was a great deal and it saves you time and effort to put food out on your own. Just give Juan a call if you’re thinking about it and get an estimate.
If you can’t get the food truck to park outside your front door, get the taco man to come to your backyard!
